12 Toys of Christmas: 3 Cabbage Patches Sprouting

Cabbage Patch Kids, still marketed today, became a growing fad in the early 1980s. The product itself was actually invented in the 1970s by Xavier Roberts, and was originally named Little People. It wasn’t until 1982 when the name “Cabbage Patch Kids” came into existence.

The name “Cabbage Patch Kids,” according to Roberts, is said to have come from a mother’s answer to where babies come from — the cabbage patch. (If you’re a parent and you’re reading this, I bet you are thinking about how you’ve answered this same question).

The company website describes the “legend” of how Cabbage Patch Kids came into being. Check out the link.
